What does working-class power look like?10:00am Sat 30 Mar
About this session
Workers make everything run in our society, while the ruling class calls the shots and decides what happens with the wealth our labour produces. Capitalist society makes this state of affairs seem normal. But when workers choose to organise and fight back, we can get a glimpse of the power held by the working class – not just its power to shut down the profit machine and force concessions from the bosses, but its potential to run society in a democratic, collective fashion. This session will look at what this looks like, and why Marxists consider the working class to be the gravediggers of capitalism.
